THE IMPACT OF ISLAM

The last several centuries of the near millennium of interaction between Islam and Christendom saw a number of events that served as a kind of transition from the Middle Ages to a new era of international engagement.  Two events in particular, the fall of Constantinople in the middle of the fifteenth century and the final expulsion of Muslims from Andalusia at the end of that century, illustrate this transition.

AFTERMATH

The progress of Islam into southeast Europe was generally slow.  By contrast, the Muslim advance into the Iberian peninsula was swift but its retreat slow and hard-fought.  Islam arrived in the spring of 711 , with an army, initially, of some 7,000 men.  They marched inland without a great deal of opposition until, on 19 July, they were confronted by the Christian king, Roderick of Andalusia, on the River Guadalete.
